Since Spotify V1.0.87 released, Sidify Music Converter for Spotify now only allows Mac users to convert Spotify music at 1X speed with SIP enabled. In order to make Sidify work up to 5X speed, you can turn SIP off by following the steps below.
Tip #1: Please make sure you're running the latest version of Sidify Music Converter for Spotify V1.2.9, otherwise you need to download and install the latest version from: Sidify Download Center.
Tip #2: If you don't want to turn off your SIP, you can also choose to revert to the old version of Spotify V1.0.86.
To convert Spotify music at 5x speed, you need to turn SIP off temporarily. Before you decide to disable SIP to run Sidify Music Converter for Spotify, please note what is SIP (System Integrity Protection) and what will happen after disable it.
1. You must boot into the Recovery OS by restarting your machine > holding
COMMAND + R until the Apple logo appears. Then select Terminal from the Utilities menu.
2. In the window that opens, type csrutil enable --without kext and press return.
3. This turns off the SIP partially when Sidify Music Converter runs if 5x conversion speed selected. Now type reboot and press return to restart your machine, then you can launch the Sidify Music Converter for Spotify on Mac and convert music files at 5x speed.
